About
Lambert Castle, referred to as "The Castle" by many local residents, is the late Victorian-era mansion of former silk magnate Catholina Lambert. It was in the castle that Catholina Lambert displayed many of his prized European and American paintings. The historic site represents one of several rare examples of castellated residential architecture in America. Lambert Castle was listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places in 1975 and the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. For a long stretch of time, visitors were invited to explore permanent period room exhibits and indulge in scenic view of the New York City skyline. The museum also presented changing exhibits that reflected the local history of Passaic County. Today, Lambert Castle is under renovation and closed to the public. The project is expected to be completed in 2023. In the meantime, venture up to Lambert Tower in Garret Mountain Reservation. Lambert built this 70-foot-tall observation tower.

worth seeing
Aug 2019
The Castle is worth seeing but does not provide much information and there really isn't a lot to see. There can be events there that detract for access.

Disappointed
Dec 2019
I really should not be writing this review but I was disappointed that when I looked at the website and a automated phone call that it did not say it was closed. I called before coming and it said the hours of operation. This was the day after Christmas. Nothing saying it was closed.

Christmas

Beautiful place to visit with all the Christmas decorations and crafts. Has 3 floors to the castle but does have an elevator for those who can't climb. You can also purchase food on the 3rd floor

We took a ride to the oark on top of the hill and really enjoyed the area and view. Great place to bring a lunch and hang out!

Interesting History
Apr 2019
A beautiful and historic site that is a relevant component of the city of Paterson. The glass windows show part of the family history and the castle is an intimate view of how an immigrant family used to live. A wonderful place to spend time with your family.

A true gem!
Aug 2019
WE took our visiting family to visit the Castle and it was a wonderful time. Its New Jersey's own Newport experience with such wonderful architectural features, furnishings and exquisite collections. Everyone found something that captured their interest and the history of this place is fascinating. Definitely worth a visit!

An affordable stop on your Paterson tour

The castle has three floors with antique furnishings, art & items from the area. I’d plan to spend about an hour.
From November to December there is a craft fair & touring is not always available while they are preparing the sale.
There is a small gift shop & restrooms on the first floor.

Stunning!
May 2019 • Family
A great piece of Paterson history. If you get a chance take the tour. The tour guides are excellent. The artwork is exquisite and the old handcrafted furniture is amazing. I've been here several times. Very nice views also... dont be bothered by the gun shots. It's just the Sheriff department at their gun range...lol

NJ gem - Lambert Castle
Mar 2019 • Family
An interesting place to spend an afternoon to have a window on how the wealthy lived at the turn of the last century. Catholina Lambert emigrated from England at age 17 and became a successful silk mill owner in Paterson. The home sits high above the city and has some spectacular views. The house, it’s furnishings and artwork are well worth the $5 admission. I plan to come back later in the spring when the tower (located on top of the mountain) is open to the public.

Don't Make a Special Trip
Jan 2019 • Couples
This was an interesting place to visit, but definitely not worth a special trip. The first floor is decorated with pieces from the period, but very little remains from the families original belongings. The second floor was a mini museum of the area, but if you want a history of Paterson, there is a much better free museum just a couple blocks from Paterson Falls. The observation tower is only open seasonally, so was not open during our visit. This was not worth a special trip, but would be a decent way to spend an hour or so if you're already in the area.
